About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions.  Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

For your body to work well, its structure must also work well – so osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.  I use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.  I can also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Osteopathy Patients

My patients include people of all ages, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people.  Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, including back pain, repetitive strain injury, changes to posture in pregnancy, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.

About Me

I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 1996 and began my career working in group practices in Sevenoaks and Croydon.  In 1998, I established ‘Hillosteopath’ and currently divide my time between three practices;  Croydon (Just Holistic), Aylesford (Larkfield Leisure Centre) and Ashurst Wood West Sussex.

I have a keen interest in sports and sports medicine.  I am committed to helping my patients help themselves by giving postural advice, recommendations for exercise (both stretching and strengthening) and guidance with remedial treatment they can continue at home.

I play tennis, use the gym and frequently run long distances.  I live on the edge of Ashdown Forest with my partner and our two rescue dogs.  I am a member of the National Trust, The Caravan Club and I have been a student at ILA (Institut Linguistique Adenet) in Montpellier where I studied French.

I look forward to hearing from you.  Please telephone or email through the Contact Us page.
